Camaro ish rear end, yuck! And the vents above the rear wheels, not a fan either. Interior much improved. Other than that, a nice looking vette.

Really like the front, not too sure about rear, still think interior is not where it should be, just way too much cheap plastic.

And before someone yells at me and says American muscle is all about HP and nothing else, take a look at the new Viper's interior. These cars aren't exactly cheap so I think a nice interior is a must.

Having said that, no doubt this car will be spanking everything in terms of performance vs price though.

it looks really good. i see a lot of Viper in the front headlights and Camero in the rear with Skyline GT-R in between. Not that there is anything wrong with it. Looks refreshing and if it handles like anything like the CTS V-Spec, it's surely will be a winner IMHO.

I think it looks very good! I just can't consider a 2-seater given my family needs.

I feel the weak link in design is definitely the tail lights, but not hideaous. IMO, they should have retained the round Corvette tails. People are saying they are seeing a lot of Viper in this latest Vette, but keep in mind the latest Viper is taking cues from Ferrari and this Vette is no different.

Both Viper and this Vette moved from more horizontal headlights to a more vertical design much like the F-cars have. The most obvious and biggest change is the C-pillar area IMO. Corvette has maintained the C-pillar-LESS all glass design for generations and now there is a C-pillar that mimics the one seen on Ferraris. I know imitation is the ultimate form of, well you know the saying, but I doubt Ferrari is "flattered".

Overall I think it's nice, and very good update to the C6, but it's a bit busy and garish.

Sort of like the Hamann guys have already had their one-over with the car.

After looking at the REAL photos on the unveiling, I have to take back my initial response. The design looks good but the actual car doesnt look as good as the photos. The fit and finish just are up to par yet.

C7 Vette

With new C7 Vette, Audi RS7 and different Porsche 991 variants I am dying to see something special from the M division. Everyone is really stepping up their game and BMW really has to push the envelope to stay ahead.

Actually, if you do some searching, you will discover, that there is minimal plastic in the interior, period. Everything is aluminum, leather, CF. This is also the BASE car you are looking at. I really think they have nailed it.

You didnt account for W/// being an expert at telling good plastic from cheap plastic

The front end of the car looks like it was designed by a completely different person than the one who designed the rear. What is up with that big block of space below the tail light area. The area around the tail lights looks ok (although it doesn't match the front design) but then the design team must have just left for the weekend and somebody else just said "oh fcuk it...lets just make it a big rectangle". WTF?

Looks familiar but yet modern, will be great to see one in person.

However the steering wheel looks like crap!
